Melvin Gaels GAA Club Notes 19/04/2018

Senior League v St Mary’s – On Saturday evening the Senior team took on St Mary’s in St Osnatt’s pitch, Glencar and secured a good win on a scoreline of 1-16 to 1-8. This was a good team performance and the Gaels were in control for most of the game. Well done to all the players and mentors. No joy for the Junior team in Melvin Park on Sunday when they were well beaten by a strong Allen Gaels team.

Championship Draw – In the Championship Draw, the Senior team are in Group 2 and play St Mary’s, Allen Gaels, Glencar/Manorhamilton, Bornacoola and Augnasheelin. In the Junior A Championship, the  Junior team are drawn in Group 3 and play Glencar/Manorhamilton and AllenGaels.

Sponsorship – The Club would like to thank GPM Garden Property Maintenance for sponsorship of the Jerseys for the girls teams

Kinlough Community Development Plans – A Committee has been formed, which is made up by groups who make use of the facilities at the Community Centre, Kinlough to develop the playing fields and amenities now needed in the area. Melvin Park is not able to cater for all the games taking place there at present. Phase one of these plans is a new realigned sand and soil-based playing field. The Club is part of this committee and will be involved in the major fundraising which will be needed. The Fundraising initiative will be launched on Saturday May 12th in the Community Centre. Everyone associated with the Club over the years in any way, whether as a player or non- player, at home or anywhere in the world, is asked to support these plans to make the badly needed playing facilities in Kinlough something to be proud of.  Part of the plan will involve “Make Your Mark on Melvin Park” for €100 which will represent a square of Melvin Park, entry into a draw, prizes 5x €1000, your name on a commemorative plaque.  More details in the coming weeks.

50/50 Draw – The winner of last week’s draw was Laura Melanniff, C/o Spar Kinlough.  Laura won €315
